It’s super gray in Philly today, but I came across this video on Now Voyager and it’s making me glad! All those birdies are so cute and funny flying and tittering! The song is from the Amelie soundtrack – so wonderful!
Last week we looked at a few of our blazers, and the Knit Mandarin Collar Blazer was the favorite by nearly 50 votes, with 172 votes total!
Since our new catalog just dropped, we have a bunch of new rompers that I have been checking out. Look at them with me!
First take a look at the Ditsy Crinkle Romper.
Next up is the Floral Romper.
If you’re in NYC and looking for something fun and free to do tonight, check out the Alberta Cross show in Brooklyn! It’s taking place at Brooklyn Bowl at 8pm, and they are playing with another cool band, Phonograph, so it should be a great show! And free! You can’t beat that!

Japanese designhouse Felissimo is starting up a new project soon, and it’s pretty cool! For 33$ a month they will send you a different assortment of 25 like-colored pencils each month, for 20 months. The different colors have names like Arizona sunset and drizzly afternoon, and come in really awesome packaging – works of art in themselves! I can’t afford to subscribe, but maybe someday! Until then I’m enjoying the pictures! If you want to subscribe, or you just want to look at all the fabulous colors, check out the website!
Happy Thursday! It’s poll time!
Last week we looked at the Studded Cuff Thermal top, and it was a close vote, with the Wine Wash color beating out the Charcoal color by only 19 votes!
It seems kind of early to be thinking about autumn, but just like there are already back-to-school sale advertisements on the television, we already have really cute blazers for when the weather cools down! Of course I have been browsing them, and I want to know which styles appeal to you the most! Here is a sampling of our blazers below…
First up, the Studded Stripe Blazer in Charcoal!
Next check out the Plaid Cascading Blazer, shown here in Red Plaid.
Here we have the Black Sequin Blazer!
Next up is the Lacey Boyfriend Blazer in Burgundy.
Finally, here is the Knit Mandarin Collar Blazer in Oatmeal Heather.
So which of these blazers do you like the most?

Recently our Web Operations Manager, Heather, helped to organize a really fun event here in Philly, the Independance Day Scooter Rally! It lasts for a whole weekend, and this year was very successful, with over 150 people who showed up from all over- two ladies even came all the way from Oklahoma! Heather kindly shared a few really cool pictures from the rally, check them out!

This video makes me want to go to the aquarium right now! It was shot by Jon Rawlinson at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium in Japan. This particular tank is the second largest aquarium tank in the world! How fun would it be to be that scuba diver at the bottom…

P.S. The fullscreen version is pretty rocking.
